Inquiry Primed: An Intervention to Mitigate the Effects of Stereotype Threat ...

NSF Awards: 1313713

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

We are developing an online professional development course for 8th grade science teachers. The fifteen teachers that participate in a pilot the course in the fall of 2015 will learn about stereotype threat and practice strategies to reduce the negative effects in an inquiry science context. The course will address strategies and tools to improve instruction, feedback and student collaboration and will be infused with real student data from our experimental studies that found a negative classroom wide effect of stereotype threat on student collaboration. In this video we will discuss a brief overview of the project and the phenomenon of stereotype threat, our experimental study design and results, and our current plan for developing the online course to help teachers create a successful classroom environment.
